Luke is a co-founder, Non-Executive Director and Board member at EMM Consulting.
Formerly as CEO, Luke led successful and sustainable growth before stepping down to enable succession and the continued flow of energy through the company. During his tenure, the team grew organically by over 700%; the company expanded geographically, to its now national footprint; it diversified across markets and sectors and capabilities to drive industry leading service to our clients; efficient systems and policies evolved; and strong corporate governance was implemented.
Luke remains steadfast in keeping values and culture at the heart of everything does. He assists to drive a culture of trust and empowerment where no one is bigger than the team. Luke set the foundation for establishing the company’s ‘creating opportunities’ purpose, a guiding principle which underpins decisions linked to clients, the community and the EMM team.
This same approach to leadership is applied in his role as Non-Executive Director and Chair of Dover Castle Metals, which is focused on the exploration and processing of strategic and critical minerals in Far North Queensland, and Co-founder and Non-Executive Director role with Blue Carbon S2C, which will achieve real action on climate change at scale by developing and financing blue, teal and green carbon projects and trading our own and third-party carbon credits and co-benefits.
Together, Luke’s roles provide him with a holistic view of the transition to the green economy, its challenges and opportunities and the fundamentally important role companies such as EMM play.
Luke is a big believer in making a positive impact and giving back to the community. He has fundraised for charity Running for Premature Babies, enabling the purchase of life saving medical equipment for both Royal Hospital for Women, Sydney, and Alice Springs Hospital NICU. Luke is now involved with the establishment of a permanent east coast chapter of Ocean Heroes, a non-for-profit providing children on the Autism spectrum with the opportunity to surf in a safe, fun and inclusive environment.
